The Annual Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo is coming back to Scotland from August 4-26, 2017. We are currently working on a father/daughter trip for the daughter’s 16th birthday surprise! Talk about a great birthday!
Performers from over 48 countries have taken part in the Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, and around 30 per cent of the 220,000 audience each year are from overseas. The Tattoo’s unique ability to bring together thousands of people for this annual celebration of music and entertainment continues and the public’s appetite for pomp and ceremony shows no sign of diminishing. This is the 2016 advertisement for the Tattoo:
Even though you might travel to Edinburgh for the Tattoo that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t see more of Scotland! Edinburgh has nightly ghost tours and daily city tours. You can travel up North to the Scottish Highlands to search for the infamous Loch Ness Monster and tour one of the many castles (Urquhart pictured below, Dunrobin pictured above):
Take a quick flight from Scotland to Ireland and spend another few days or another week visiting Dublin, or even Belfast in Northern Ireland. Customizing an itinerary to the experiences you want should be taken advantage of while in the United Kingdom.
